As I have discussed before, I am an avid points and miles fan. I collect them any which way I can but predominantly through credit card sign up bonuses.
I have had this "hobby" for many years now and one of the predominant sources of information on credit cards has been The Points Guy.
His website is definitely worth a read.
In a recent article that The Points Guy posted, he explained that the Marriott is going to offer timeshares on the island of Dominica.
I have never been to Dominica but it has been on my radar.
I have been to many other Caribbean islands and a lot of them have various programs where if you purchase a certain amount of real property, it qualifies you for citizenship. These are interesting programs as you can live on a luxurious Caribbean island and receive the perks of citizenship.
What made this article interesting is that they are offering this type of program through the purchase of timeshares. It appears that pricing starts at $220,000 but it is an interesting take.
Take a look at this article here.
I'll have to do more recent into this program and this new timeshare but this is an interesting idea.
Would you ever participate in this program? Does citizenship provide enough value to purchase a $220,000 timeshare?
